Butterfly House at Norfolk Botanical Gardens (Norfolk)

July 8

The Summer Butterfly House at Norfolk Botanical Garden was originally a temporary summer exhibit in 2009. Due to its popularity, it became a permanent annual exhibit and a regular destination for summer visitors. The house connects over 45,000 visitors each summer to the wonders of nature and the unique science of metamorphosis to the mystifying migration of the monarch butterfly. By hosting native butterflies and moth species along with the plants that support their life cycles, guests can learn how to protect these essential insects by creating habitat vital to their survival in the wild, all while seeing them up close and in action.

Maintaining the Summer Butterfly House and its inhabitants is an intensive and rewarding endeavor for our non-profit organization. In 2022, major renovations were completed that included an expanded accessible pathway, a new entrance and installation of new screens throughout the house. This year we are exciting to unveil our new paving and walkways!
